By reference. The name of the string is converted to a pointer (in C/C++) and given to the function as the address of the first element. (In Java, all objects are passed by reference, and there are no pointers.)

You cannot arbitrarily determine what is passed to a function from outside of the function. If the function expects a reference, then the memory address of the variable will be automatically passed to the function. If the function expects a value, then a copy of the variable's value is automatically passed instead. In other words, it is the function signature that determines what is passed, not how you call the function.

The stricmp() function in C language compares two strings with case insensitivity. Java provides equalsIgnoreCase() method in Strings class for the same function.void stringTest() {String s1 = "foo";String s2 = "Foo";if (s1.equalsIgnoreCase(s1, s2))System.out.println("strings equal");elseSystem.out.println("strings not equal");}Output for this method would be:> strings equal

The easiest way to check to see if two strings are equal is to use the strcmp function. If the result is 0, then the strings are equal:char one [] = "One" ;char two [] = "Two" ;if (strcmp (one, two) == 0){puts ("Equal strings") ;}else{puts ("Not equal strings") ;}

When a function is passed by value the calling function makes a copy of the passed argument and works on that copy. And that's the reason that any changes made in the argument value does gets reflected to the caller.

Prototype of function describes return value as well as which data can be passed to the function.

Function overloading is a means of providing alternative implementations of the same function according to the number and type of argument passed to it.

Reference function has no meaning. Variables are passed to functions by reference or by value, depending on the function signature.

char one [] = "A string" ;char two [] = "Different String" ;if (strcmp (one, two) == 0){puts ("The two strings are identical") ;}else{puts ("The two strings are different") ;}

There are only two methods: pass by value and pass by reference. The function itself determines how arguments are passed into the function, as defined by the function signature. If the function accepts a reference, then the argument is passed by reference, otherwise it is passed by value. Pointers are always passed by value but behave like references. The only real difference is that pointer values may be NULL but references can never be NULL.

Arrays are passed as pointers, eg: void function (int *ip); int main (void) { int n[32]; int *ip = &n[0]; /* these three do the same thing: */ function (&n[0]); function (n); function (ip); }

When a array is passed to a function, the array is internally changed to a 'pointer'. And pointers are always passed by reference. Hence the answer to the question.

When an array name is passed as a function argument, the address of the first element is passed to the function. In a way, this is implicit call by reference. The receiving function can treat that address as a pointer, or as an array name, and it can manipulate the actual calling argument if desired.

Use '%s', eg: char name[64]; scanf ("%s", name);

If you mean when she passed out from the Tracker Jacker strings, she realized that Peeta saved her life.

method by which urine is passed from he kidney to the bladder.

between parentheses: funname ("string")

try this: <function-name> ( <array-name> )

It 's address is received by the function . that any changes in the value of array elements in the function will result in actual change.

I guess you meant the following:'In C language, when you call a function,the parameters are passed by-value.'

When a variable is passed by value, the function receives a copy of the variable. When a variable is passed by reference, the function receives a reference, or pointer, to the original data.
